Another month – another webcam tournament! We were very fortunate to have it streamed via www.twitch.tv/epicecky . VOD should be available but the full edited stream will be made available on YouTube in the coming weeks so stay tuned for that. In the meantime long time webcammer Ben is going to take us through the tournament and his experiences, enjoy!
Here is a list of our past 7 Point highlander events. Tournament organisers and community representatives have worked hard to collect and submit the Top 8 placings from their local highlander events. Typically collecting a digital deck list from each of their top players. If you want to show your event results and give a short description of your 7 point highlander event, you can submit a Tournament Report here.
Tournament Report by the Winner: Rajdeep Tokhi (Abzan “Junk” Midrange) Metagame: 17 players turned up for the GG Adelaide 7ph monthly! As is usual for Adelaide, the event had a wide variety of decks. With midrange being the most common having 8 representative decks, Tempo decks such as Hootie and the BUG fish, Nono Blue and 4c Ninjas(!) were seen. Thassa’s oracle decks were also present in the form of Esper Combo-Control and Soc’s signature Cephalid Brunch. Control is becoming less and less popular in Adelaide, however, Drew still planted the control archetype flag in the top 8 with his… Read More »SA: Good Games Adelaide (17 Players) 31/10/2020 | Deck Lists & Tournament Report

First off a massive thank you to our two baller Judges – Tyrone Philips and Ryan Kruger for running a great event. (A big thank you to the bunch of players that travelled for this event). We had 32 players battling it out for over $800 of cash prizes over 5 rounds of swiss and a cut to top 8. As always we saw a multitude of midrange decks, both playing fair games and some of them running very unfair combos (strip mine locks, creating 20/20 Marit Lage tokens and gaining infinite life). In the playing field we saw a… Read More »QLD: Battlestation Toowoomba – Competitive REL – (32 players) | Deck Lists & Tournament Report
Back in the webcam saddle for this international tournament but this time, South Australian regular Barb Tapley has taken over CBR MTG to retell her impressive experience with her deck: Tribal Flames Zoo! You can read her full tournament report here.
A webcam event was held on October 3 by the CBR MTG team due to popular demand for these small regular events to keep people connected during Covid that is stopping people playing Magic: the Gathering at the local game store.
This month’s Highlander event at Dragon’s Lair took place in the new storefront in St Mary’s, South Australia saw 16 players! After the recent Zendikar Rising points announcement there was a distinct difference in colours played in the Adelaide meta, namely fewer Wrenn and Sixes (GR) overall. There was a noticeable uptick in Black decks, in particular Esper, Sultai, and Jund making a great turnout in the Top 8! However, this did not stop the RUG decks from rising to the top… in fact the finals of the event were the very two RUG decks in the event (an insane… Read More »SA: Dragon’s Lair Adelaide (16 Players) 27/09/20 | Deck Lists & Tournament Report
After celebrating 3 months of no active cases of Covid, paper magic is well and truly back in the Australian Capital. 13 Canberrans came together for a proxy friendly, “Pub REL” event in the Whisky Room at Civic Pub. As we were not confined to the (CLASSIST) rules of WPN, we were able to allow proxies and Zendikar Rising cards! 13 players came together for our first community face-to-face event for the year! Proxies allowed, 4 rounds, cut to Top 4. Congratulations to Jake and Frank who prize split in the finals!
